Administrative history

On August 31, 1929, the Bridgeview School District held its first recorded meeting, at which time they applied for title to four acres on the NW corner of section 3 -- 77-6-W6 for a school site. The community had the necessary minimum requirement of 7 school age children. In January, 1930 the first class of students was taught by Mamie Godwin, followed in the same decade by N. Thompson, Hazel Gerry and Nancy Thompson, Allan McDougal, Olive Mallard, Albert Wilkie, Donald McCallum. At a meeting in February 1930, William Jones was elected chairman of the Board and John Essex was elected secretary/treasurer. Other trustees who served included R.J Coulter, G. Brownlee and Mary Brownlee, R.J. Hick, L.R. Woodard, Thomas Johnson, A.M.Edey, Willard Hamilton, C.H.Lowes, and A Smith. In 1939, a teacherage (former home of Mr. and Mrs. Jolley) was moved onto the school property with Don McCallum becoming its first resident. In 1941, he school district was transferred from subdivsion 2 to subdivision 3 of the Spirit River School Division #47. Teachers in the 1940s following McCallum were Alice McBride, William Parlee, Elva Smith, Muriel Grime, Kathleen Carkener and Harold Sather, May Spiden and Ileanna Baisley, Muriel Hamilton. From 1950-1953, Jean Hamilton, Jerry Pomeroy, Ruth Mueller, Helen Eisert, Jean Polasek, and Lucille Thornton were teachers. In the fall of 1953 the children were bussed to Spirit River. In 1983, the school was still on its original site and was used by Unifarm Local No. 1506. The school, still with its original stove and baby grand piano, was used as the center for the White Mountain, Willowvale and Bridgeview Homecoming in 1980.
